REACTION: JP McManus generous donation to GAA clubs praised
JP McManus’ extremely generous donation in the tune of €3.2 million to the GAA has been met with widespread praise. Thirty two counties will receive €100,000 from McManus as a result of his generosity.
This all comes on the back of Limerick winning the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship for the first time in 45 years. The McManus family have backed Limerick GAA since 2004 under the Sporting Limerick brand.
Some of the reaction to the announcement of the donation can be seen below.
Kerry footballer Darran O’Sullivan was among those to pay tribute
The Clare Champion’s Eoghan Moloney says that the word hero doesn’t come close to describing McManus

JP McManus donates €100,000 to every GAA county board. He could have given it all to Limerick. Great sportsmanship. Still on a high after winning the All Ireland and who would blame him! https://t.co/nm9CaPYFUw via @RTENewsNow
